Body of Anchorite Thelos... Stolen?
We recently got an information that the body of Thelos has been stolen from the Tomb of Lights. His coffin and body are the only stolen thing and its not yet known how did that aswell as the date of the robbery, it may have taken place yesterday or as far as last month.

Tjib reads the small paragraph repeated times for some reason shaking.
He puts down the paper before starting to rub his face slowly, muttering a incredible amount of quite creative gnomish cursewords.

It takes him five minutes to create a plan of action, five more minutes to poke it full off holes and create a new one, after another five minutes of self-debating, Tjib changes out of his soiled pants.
He mutters to himself "Nobody knows... relax..."

Hmm...I know the paper is "hiring," but I'd love to offer my OOC skills as a proofreader. Smile I have considered joining as an IC journalist but been too busy with college lately to make a serious inquiry about it. Still, if you'd like to PM it to me before "publication," I can fix up the grammar and such.

Greetings and Salutations French comrade.

I believe that you are spitting gallywags here, you are more than available IC as well. Now assist Larnira or face the wrath of a potential nuclear holocaust in the Fifth French Republic, we fear no capitalist retaliation!

No regards from the Supreme Leader have been granted.

You had my interest until "French."

Then I looked away as it didn't apply to me.

Meanwhile, in Drustai's lab...

Spoiler:
Drustai sat down at a wooden table sat against the wall of the darkly lit cave. Of course, it did not look like a cave, her illusions saw to that. It was still suitably cryptic despite the effort, with the smooth, rounded walls reminiscent of Auchindoun and under dim green candles that were only contrasted by the flicking orange glow emanating from a small plague cauldron in the southeast corner. The silhouettes of several figures stood idle down the hall to another wing, still as statues though not quite as resilient. Their shapes, though hard to identify in the poor lighting, were of many different races--human, orc, and even mogu and yaungol. Upon one of the slabs in the center of the room rested another figure, over which was draped a silk sheet. Only its dessicated tail could be seen, lying out over the side of the slab from under its cover.

Drustai set the stack of letters atop the table. The addresses written upon their envelopes marked most of them as of little importance--business contracts, hate letters, the latest Stormwind Times, and the like--but one stood out from the rest. An urgent request from one Vrachos of the Naaruvada.

Drustai picked up the letter and slid her long nail beneath the seal, and then pulled out the parchment. She unfurled it, and quickly read it over.

The remains of the late Anchorite Thelos have been taken, the letter said. This is news most dire. The Naaruvada calls upon your expertise to investigate the case.

Drustai snorted. Of all people, they would call on her. Of course, the necromancer, cast aside in all other situations, would nevertheless be called to help locate a corpse. She picked up her quill and began to pen a response on a separate piece of paper. The Consortium or adventurers were responsible, she wrote. The Sha'tar had betrayed the Auchenai years ago and allowed tomb-robbers and pillagers free reign over the temple's crypts. They were at fault for not properly guarding the temple.

Investigation is no use. Auchindoun is no temple for us anymore. If you want to see something done, then convince the Sha'tar to establish a new Auchenai order to watch over the temple in order to prevent future desecration like this.

She signed the letter, and then placed it in a new envelope. She stamped it with a wax seal, and set it aside. She would deliver it next time she was in an Alliance city. For now, she had other work to do. She stood up from her seat and drew her bone wand from its case as she stepped over to the center slab.

A response arrives to the newspaper (obviously not public but it's fun to share):




To: Miss Telaira Ambervein

It is a shame that your newspaper once again is found to publish common slander without proper evidence, not to mention that the reporter that supposedly was to interview me you sent never showed up for our appointment.

I'm afraid your sources are quite misinformed and I doubt they would be alive should they actually have met Sophyra Bridlington when not subdued. The reason she has yet to be executed is a simple one, it was requested that information be extracted from her by members of the Disciples of Light and as such that is a work in progress. She will not be trialled as she has recently attained demonhood and as such does not have any rights, however I assure you that public execution will be arranged once the Disciples concur that all that is necessary has been done.

To avoid further inaccurate and slanderous information I recommend you check with the proper sources before you publish. I would also demand a retraction of words that serve to slander myself and a public apology in order to avoid unnecessary implications under the law.

Dear Lord Minister Braiden Arthur Bernard Mistmantle.

I am sad to inform you that the reporter who was to do your interview, got other wise occupied as things as you know do happen within our Kingdom. It is however true and without a doubt that you are not in the posession of Sophyra Bridlington. And it is indeed possible to meet with her without being subdued. So.. You claim to have a prisoner still that you do not, amusing dear Lord Minister. I do hope you have such hold of her that she comes to you on a whim, for alas last I spoke to her myself is less than a week ago. And then she was most certaintly not in Stormwind. So when speaking of facts, check your own. I know she can change form Minister, but she sadly is not that good at changing personality or proper -true- looks.

To: Miss Loreli Dunell

With your supposed resourcefulness you should be working in law enforcement. It seems to me that if you have the possibility to contact Sophyra Bridlington was she actually roaming free withholding such information from the law reflects poorly on yourself.

I believe that if this story is not fabricated entirely by yourself, you have been the victim of an elaborate scheme by an illusionist. In fact I would have offered to show you that Sophyra Bridlington is in my custody but I believe you are quite compromised. I would also once again add that the Disciples of Light have access to her at any time as they are tasked with interrogating her. Does it not seem like poor planning on my part to have it like this if I had in fact fabricated the situation?

At any rate you are requested to report to the local authorities for imprisonment following interrogation on account possibly colaborating with cultists or invoulentairy exposiure to dark influence to be cleansed. Should you refuse to comply there will be a warrant out for your arrest.

To Lord Minister Braiden Arthur Bernard Mistmantle.

I will of course report to the Disciples of Light, without a question provided you are not anywhere near, when that comes to pass. I did however not break any laws all of this took place outside of our Kingdom. As for contacting her, I do assure you the lady herself contacted me. For an illusion she knew far too well the secrets of Sophyra Bridlington. So I suggest your Disciples first of all sends a written statement to the Stormwind Times proving by their own words, that they can be sure she have never ever escaped your care. As I firmly do believe Minister that you are very wrong. And what am I a poor reporter to do against a demon summoner? Truly? Scream perhaps dear Minister. When the woman herself was so eager to drink tea and tell me how your master plan could not be proved? I believe Minister that my life is on the line here. So I suggest you give solid proof and the same check on your own person as you are asking of me. As I have nothing to hide.

I shall contact the Disciples myself, as soon as I am back in Stormwind.
As right now Minister and also while drinking this cup of tea with Lady Bridlington I was not in the Kingdom of his majesty our King so I was somewhere our laws does not apply, funny how a demoness who knows I know her past, did not wish to see me in Stormwind... Especially as she is supposed to be in your care, funny enough you do not keep her in the usual place for prisoners, the jail. So none would be able to verify, that she indeed was not with you all along. And you will surely by now have summoned her back into your place. Make sure to tell her I do not like beer. As for the lady; she said to thank you for giving her a reason to have a vacation. And one day, please do me the honor of showing me your true form.. Unless of course that was an illusion, the rest however is not possible is one, you see I know what she likes to look like, what she likes to do and what she is missing.. One day I might even have to take whats hers and give it back.

oh, I just realised that Larnira forgot to post an artists redition of the Silver Lion, how silly of him/her.
Therefore, consider this picture and subsequent caption to be listed directly under the articles regarding the Silver Lion.

An artists redition of the mysterious White Lion. A symbol of hope, or a vicious vigilante?

To the Stormwind Times. From Areyah Conover, Minister of Defense.


Ministry of Defense
MONDAY, Jan. 14th. [30]

This is a notice that your newspaper is printing seditious libel. Your recent January 13th "Special Edition" publication has included a letter from "Z", an individual believed to be linked with known enemies of the state. By circulating this publication, which contains intentional misinformation regarding ongoing investigations, you are assisting enemies of the state in inciting unrest and hostility against Stormwind officials.

You are hereby demanded to issue a public statement retracting the "Z" letter, and to remove the letter from all future publications of the January 13th Special Edition publication. Additionally, any further slandering of Stormwind officials in your newspapers, or circulating of cultist writings, will result in legal action.

King's honour,


Areyah Conover

Unfortunately, and I'm loath to admit it, this was shameless taken from Google. However, I'm planning to drawing my own pictures from now on, so hopefully It will all work out in the end.

The following is published by the Stormwind Times, with copy of the letter the newspaper recieved by Areyah Conover, and the newspapers reply below it.
Spoiler:
To the Stormwind Times. From Areyah Conover, Minister of Defense.



Ministry of Defense
MONDAY, Jan. 14th. [30]


This is a notice that your newspaper is printing seditious libel. Your recent January 13th "Special Edition" publication has included a letter from "Z", an individual believed to be linked with known enemies of the state. By circulating this publication, which contains intentional misinformation regarding ongoing investigations, you are assisting enemies of the state in inciting unrest and hostility against Stormwind officials.

Additionally, any further slandering of Stormwind officials in your newspapers, or circulating of cultist writings, will result in legal action.

King's honour,


Areyah Conover
Minister of Defense


To Minister Conover, and the Grand Alliance.
We here at the Stormwind Times would merely like to point out that we are a privately held business, and we print articles due to the interest in them, and the amount we are paid to print those articles. We would like to point out that articles written by members of the public do not represent the newspapers official views.
In light of this, we would like to point out that the article in question, by the mysterious "Z", does -not- show our viewpoints on the matter. We would hope that the community would take everything we print with a grain of salt.

Furthermore, if Minister Conover has any evidence that refutes the claim by Z, regarding Minister Mistmantle, then she should feel more than free enough to send it to us, and we will willing print that information, without the usual charges.
Kings Honor!

Issue Seven of the Stormwind Times is reprinted, minus the letter by Z. So, from 14.01.13 onwards, ignore that letter.
Along with the reprint, the following apology has replaced the letter by Z.

To the public, the Ministers, and the King.
We at the Stormwind Times would like to publically apologise to all injured parties involved in the printing of a letter by the anarchist known as Z. We would also like to state that it was not our intention to rush ahead with the issue without making the appropriate interviews and research into the matter involved. In that respect, we would like to make it known that we will ensure in future that we shall investigate the incident and events mentioned in order to find out the truth for our readers.
